I absolutely love the expressions on Klay's face in this set of photos!
Klay was a healthy 14 days old when I first met him for his newborn photoshoot. He's from Mountsorrel, Leicestershire so I was quite surprised to find him still wide awake after the car journey. To be honest I wondered a little how the session was going to go! Although awake he was contented for a good hour or so at the beginning which allowed me to photograph some wonderful expressions. I love this image of him completely relaxed in my vintage wooden bowl:
It also gave me a chance to capture some of his gorgeous features like toes and eyelashes
Eventually though with a full tummy and a warm room with relaxing music playing Klay just couldn't keep awake anymore. He soon fell asleep in his Mummy's beautiful arms (seriously isn't she stunning! I looked like something out of Monsters Inc after having my babies!)
Once he was asleep I started using the rest of the props I had set up. This lovely one of him in a wooden trug is going to be the front cover of his amazing boxed album. I know I am biased but I genuinely love my albums. They're handmade in Italy and the quality is unlike anything you've seen from this country - maybe I should do a blog post about them one day *writes note to self*
Finally we finished off the whole session with poses on the beanbag. Mum & Dad chose a soft grey colour for the backdrop which fitted in very nicely with the rest of the sessions colour scheme.
Thankyou so much for choosing me as your Newborn Photographer in Leicestershire. It was wonderful to meet you all and enjoy some cuddles with Klay
All the best
